I am going to bed here soon.

Everyone will be in my prayers tonight, as usual, but extra prayers are coming for those who are experiencing the storm. I hope that you have power tonight and through the weekend. We lost power two weeks ago when it was in the single digits and we thought we were going to freeze with no heat. Luckily, we were without it for two and a half hours and then it came back. I know how scary it can be to lose power in a situation like that!

Stay safe, warm, comfortable, and calm! Hopefully the kiddos don't drive anyone crazy tomorrow. Don't let the cabin fever get to you!!!!

We're listening to old-time radio cassettes---I think we'll just stick with those until bedtime, in case the power goes out again. Wish us luck! And xmas365, I hope your power stays on.

Still awake, looked out the window a little bit ago and you couldn't see acroos the street.

13.5 inches of snow here as of 10:30PM, at least another 14 hours of this storm to go.


Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.
Have a good night.

Good evening, friends.

Hope you are all having a good evening, and staying safe & warm!

We are currently at 9°. Tomorrow is supposed be sunny with a high of 29°. Our nasty weather comes on Sunday, with a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. That's ok, I plan to stay in, do some Valentine's Day baking for Adrian. He gave me my gift early, one that he made. I have to share, it was so thoughtful of him! And I love it.

Tomorrow night, we are going out for our Valentine's Day dinner. We love discovering new places. We never go out on the actual day, just celebrate in our own way. And we always try to make our own gifts.

What are your weekend plans?

For all of you in the wake of the blizzard, take good care of yourselves.
